PRODUCTS & APPLICATIONS

What is Shiplap?
Shiplap refers to the profile of the board.  Each board partially overlaps that of the board next to it creating a channel that gives shadow line effects.

Why would I select the NEW BARNWOOD™ Shiplap profile?
The shiplap profile offers a wider variety of installation options and advantages:

  • Backer wall does not have to be painted to complement the barnwood color.
  • More shadow line design options, from no gap up to a ¼” gap.
  • Easier to maintain a level installation from floor to ceiling or wall to wall.

Does NEW BARNWOOD offer matching trim for 8” and 12” Barnwood?
